Richard Seymour Punch: Raiders DE Smacks Big Ben
The Richard Seymour punch has been one of the most talked about moments of Sunday's slate of games.
The Raiders' defensive end was approached by Roethlisberger after the quarterback had thrown a touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders with 1:26 to go in the second quarter.
Big Ben appeared to bump into Seymour, and the defensive lineman turned and slapped him across the head.
After the game, Seymour apologized to his teammates and said the slap was a natural reaction. He said he didn't remember Big Ben saying anything to him, and the quarterback said afterward that he was stunned by the lineman's actions.
Expect Seymour to get a hefty fine, and probably some sort of suspension, in the coming days.
As it turned out, perhaps the Raiders could have used their hefty lineman for the rest of the game, as the Steelers dominated Oakland 35-3. Roethlisberger finished with 275 passing yards and three touchdowns.
